The Grand Baxter story is so far short, having formed in Melbourne from various touring bands in mid-2017 as a welcome distraction from the road. Their songs dance between the lyrically intense and the playfully pretty, watermarked with a musicality and intent driven by their individual jazz, rock and country influences.
Originally a solo project of songwriter Ben Langdon (The Bean Project), Grand Baxter quickly grew into a diversely influenced 4-piece with a live set that dances between high octane country and delicate singer-songwriter.
Inspired by artists such as Dawes, David Ramirez, Paul Simon and Willie Nelson, Grand Baxter are best described as 'a bold hamper of charisma, musicality and country-folk charm.'
